There are many myths and legends surrounding the titans of “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters.” The world they live in seems full of mysteries. A popular conspiracy theory has made its way into the movie.
Watch out, spoilers for “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” will follow!
No, the land in “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters,” the third monster in Warner’s MonsterVerse, is not a disc and there is no trace of lizard people. Here, too, our blue planet is a sphere, though not in the way we think we know it. After Godzilla barely escaped death with a new weapon called the Oxygen Destroyer, he retreats to an unknown location deep in the ocean. In search of the giant lizard, monarch scientists Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe), Dr. Ling (Ziyi Zhang), Dr. Stanton (Bradley Whitford) and company with their submarine trapped in a vortex and pulled into the depths.
Once the turbulence subsides, they are deep in the sea, far from any known region. A huge ancient city is revealed in front of them, immediately reminiscent of sunken Atlantis. Based on the design and various wall paintings, according to scientists, it is a civilization that must be much older than that of the Romans or Egyptians. For Dr. Stanton, who previously drew attention to himself with the hollow earth theory, this is confirmation of a series of tunnel systems through which the Titans can move at lightning speed over or through of the globe.
In the credits of “King Of The Monsters” the discovery of the city in question is also taken up in an article and it is assumed that thousands of years ago people lived underground with the Titans in harmony.
Hollow Earth Theory
This popular theory among conspiracy theorists dates back to the 17th century. Consequently, our earth is a hollow sphere with no terrestrial core. Tunnel-shaped connections exist through various openings, for example at the poles. In reality, of course, this theory has long been disproved by scientific discoveries. In Warner’s MonsterVerse, however, it seems to be of greater importance than previously thought, because already in “Kong: Skull Island” the hollow earth theory was an important element of the plot.
The hollow earth theory in “Kong: Skull Island”
When a team of monarchs met the huge Kong on Skull Island in 1973, the members also discovered a huge cavity in the earth’s crust from which ravenous monsters, so-called crawlers, rose to the surface. William Randa (John Goodman), leader of this expedition, explains before his tragic death that there are huge cave systems within the earth, which are inhabited by as yet undiscovered titans. Even then he was sure that the cave under Skull Island only had to be one of many openings on the entire planet. As we’ve now learned in “Godzilla 2,” you should be right with your theory.
The credits of “King Of The Monsters” suggest that Skull Island will appear in “Godzilla Vs. Kong”, in which Japan’s favorite lizard and the giant monkey will meet, will again play an important role. The seismic activity below the island could also herald new titans. We will probably learn more about the origins of the giants there.
Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters has been in German cinemas since May 30, 2019.
